Oh good. :-)

I was thinking that if you defined the trait then you would be able to
then style your element with that CSS property.  But that isn't
possible?  That was my worry, that there would be no CSS syntax to use
for specifying the matrix value.  If it is only for animation then I
guess there is no problem.

Is there any advantage to being able to specify whether the trait is of
type XML or CSS?  Is it that CSS traits will be inherited and XML traits
not?  Maybe I should just wait for sXBL to come out. :)
